Typical.........what about England?
easy, England pays for it.
Yeah, cos people in Wales don't pay taxes

Fact from ONS: 93.4% of Welsh people earn less than GBP10,000 per annum.

So technically thats true I guess

Do you have any link or you just make it up ???
So how does this work exactly? It's unclear when you read the website....

"Average pay in Wales is just £19,216 a year, figures show", headline from Walesonline 20 months ago:

There are students from all parts of the UK being shafted for high fee's in England its not levelled at just English ppl (plenty of welsh and Irish and a few Scottish study in England). After they leave there debts can be £9000 a year tuition fees x 3 = £27,000, then there's a student loan (to pay for housing and food) of approx up to £7000 x 3 years = 21,000. So they end up with a £48,000 debt for an undergraduate degree. Oh and out of the £7000 they were supposed to live on the uni's rip them off with ridiculously high housing costs + hidden extras needed for studying so not much chance to save or party -unless they get hand outs from parents that it (money going to money!). Things are very different for the students of today compared to how people in Gov had it.
Does the deal only apply to ppl who studied in wales - what if students transfer there? what about if graduates end up working there but got a degree in England?
Will England's student loans follow suit?

Does northern ireland have something like this?

Well if you die or are unable to work because of disability you can get the whole loan cancelled.

Just phoned the student loans company and the operator told me about an initiative that wipes up to £1500 off your student loan if you had a loan in 2010/11 or 2011/2012 academic year. Basically

Yeah.... in 10 years time when I'm working offshore they wont see a penny of the £30k+ I owe them anyway.

Uni is exactly the same as school. You learn **** all, do **** all, sleep all day, and if you manage to do that for 3 years, you get a degree out of it, which is useless in today's society. Oh and theres the tens of thousands worth of debt.

Some of us didn't take Film and Media, which in fact led us to do some work and get some real qualifications. If your degree is useless, it's your fault.

Never said I had a degree. I left after a year due to me realising just how much a massive waste of time it was. Oh and it was in Computing, hardly a pointless area like Media Studies. Degrees mean nothing. No one in the current climate wants to employ an unexperienced youth with a degree over someone older, more mature, with a wealth of experience in that field.

I simply stopped attending my course after a few months, yet somehow came out with umpteen certificates which meant absolutely nothing to me.

The only way to get qualifications with any sort of job prospects at the end of it these days is an apprenticeship, and even then most companies look to use you for cheap labour.

Mind you, I did enjoy spending all that lovely free government money on Jagerbombs and KFC.

A degree might not get you the job you're looking for straight away but in 5/10 years time when you have experience and a good degree you stand a much better chance of getting a job over somebody without a degree.

I have a degree in computer science with 4 years experience and earning £25k+ in an area where the average wage is quite low.

I think dropping out of your degree blaming the current climate shows a lack of maturity, foresight and commitment and I for one would not employ you.
I agree, I hate studying, I hate everything about Uni other than the social life at the moment. Having said that I realise the importance of stepping through the motions at least one more time, because ultimately employers tend to judge you in the first hurdle based on degree (if you want to go into anything much higher up than the bottom to begin with.)

So I intend to finish Uni with a strong degree, at least as a fallback!

Sounds like a(nother) bad deal for English taxpayers.

It's got sweet FA to do with the English taxpayer.

It's a devolved issue and Wales pay tax just the same as England.

Correct, but don t forget Wales receives nearly £1000 more in public spending per head.
